Zump is a great game that I picked up in Korea. The name might actually be “jump” but Koreans constantly confuse the letters ‘j’ and ‘z’. Zump is a simple one-thumb game that is extremely difficult but super fun at the same time. The game is developed by a company called Animal, but I can’t seem to find any website for them on Google. Weird.

I picked up Guitar Hero 3 for my Blackberry and it was truly awesome. The game has got a great soundtrack, simple interface and pretty terrific artwork. It definitely meets all the criteria we have for a great mobile game.
GH3 comes with enough features to keep you playing for a long time. The mobile version gives you access to 2 characters with whom you’ll be rocking, as well as 15 songs, several guitars, three difficulties and enough objectives to keep you fully entertained. The playlist of songs is fairly righteous too. Some of my favorites include, “Rock You Like a Hurricane” by the Scorpions and “School’s Out” by Alice Cooper. Another bonus is that you’ll never get bored of playing the same songs because there are 3 new songs to download monthly upon purchasing a subscription.

Looking through our Hotness section, I noticed there is a lack of ultra-casual games. Flash games have mastered the ultra-casual game type by providing endless pleasure with a minimal amount of interaction required.
This is the next installment of our QuicklyBored Roundup of brain games. So far, we have seen that many brain games fail to bring the full experience of charting brain progress over a long period of time with a wide variety of puzzles ranging in difficulty. Gameloft’s Brain Challenge is so far, the closest thing to a fully developed brain game.
I have been reviewing games for quite some time now and I was starting to feel bad because there weren’t any games that stood out as being worthy of the Hotness title. It was at that point that I was sent a copy of 3D Tilt-A-World from the company with the hilarious company name Super Happy Fun Fun.
Although we are a little late on the Super KO Boxing review, everybody knew it was only a matter of time until it was added to the hotness section. By the way, did anyone notice our impressive new graphics in the hotness and whackness categories? Super KO Boxing is such a good mobile game that I’m ready to give up my first born for a copy of it; unless of course my first born is a copy of Super KO Boxing.

Trying to get your game on with a BlackBerry can be a little frustrating sometimes, with few options beyond the usual suspects. Because of this, it doesn’t take much to please a “BlackBerry gamer;” just give them a solid version of a game you know they’ll want to play. This is exactly what Handmark (with a little help from EA) has done with Tetris for BlackBerry.
The hotness section is dedicated to the mobile games that we believe have contributed something significant to the industry. Whether the game has a unique user interface, creative concept or an innovative design, hotness will push the industry forward in some way. Insaniquarium is the quintessential hotness. This game is so highly addictive that I’m worried about the 18 million users who have already downloaded it.
Cellufun wins another roundup.
Cellufun has won a second QuicklyBored roundup. This company does a good job of providing games at a reasonable price while giving the user multiplayer and downloadable content features that are usually only provided to those who pay for their mobile games.
An innovative user interface makes this game super hot.
Time Crisis was an incredible arcade shooter. When I first picked up their gun with the repeating hammer, it felt great to squeeze off round after round. Time Crisis 3D for mobile is reminiscent of that feeling.
Namco has really outdone itself with this game. TC3D is an incredibly addictive game with a user interface that gives QuicklyBored hope for the future.
